Has anyone tried Alcatel Updater? I think there is a bug.

Updater sends plain partition command without partition table data.

updater:

The com.android.providers.userdictionary file is UserDictionaryProvider.apk , I deleted this file accidentaly.
It is the software keyboards file, so I downloaded another software keyboard, set the phone up to use that, and now I don't have the error.
But please somebody help me, how can I put back the UserDictionaryProvider.apk file ... (I need the file too, other android device file is not working to me...)

Could you please tell me, how can I install it back? :S
I run the apk, it says it successfully installed, but the error still pops up

Or in this case I must re-install the firmware somehow?

Did you check for the file if it is installed in proper place? ( /system/app/..)

you can always make a backup with titanium backup and do reinstall of the system (have a phone turne off, push "r" + red button and phone is reflashed

it's not in /system/app

I can make backup, but if the original software keyboard doesn't work (until I install another one) , I can't do much with it...

can't you just copy a file with Root explorer to specific destination?

I copied the file to /system/app (I don't know, where it was, because I deleted it with uninstaller for root) with root explorer (mounted as RW), but I cannot see the file, if I copy it again, it doesn't say that the file exists ( for example if I do this in /sdcard, it pops up the warning that the file already exists)
